The Aviatrix collects five psychedelic adventure tales featuring bizarre beasts, monsters, a mysterious pilot, and Haven navigating through unexpected twists on every page. “After feeding the girl, the strange man launched into an ominous tirade.” From the creator of Tales to Demolish, who is also the illustrator for, and a producer of, the TV show Mythbusters. Really!
“I’ve read the comic three times now and I’m not certain if it’s best understood as a clash of the mundane with the fantastic or a sly deconstruction of a hero’s origin where pride in a job well done and education take the place of a mission embraced and inspiration, which is then wrapped up and compared whole hog to a life of quiet desperation where a transcendent moment involves finding that perfect buzz. It could be both things; it’s probably neither. “ — Tom Spurgeon,The Comics Reporter
